Oddly, though I don't have much use for the 90's overall, I really like Bobby's take on Walkin' Blues. I'd skip most everything *else* on a 90's set list ... there's also Lazy River Road, which is very sweet even in the middle of some truly horrible shows.

OK, but please don't tell me you liked "Black Muddy River" also ;-)

I love Black Muddy River. But I readily admit that many of the live versions are not really listenable.

...and to be fair, much of what occurred after about 1991 was un-listenable.

Exactly. It's not the songs' fault :) Lazy River Road and Black Muddy River are exquisite. They should have been masterpieces. We all know they weren't ...

And So Many Roads. It's a short sweet list of bright last flames ...
